Hi

I have installed RC4.

What is the recommended procedure for loading existing setups from RC3 to RC4 (including gcode start etc.)?

Or should I open both and copy and paste?

    Use the "file->save profile" option, and "file->load profile". Profiles are compatible between versions. Profiles loaded into older version will preserve settings that are not known in that version. So it's always safe to load/edit/modify and save a profile from any version.

    Up from RC3 the start/end-gcode is also saved in the profile.

    The only thing not stored in the profile is the "steps-per-E", as this is very machine specific. And the profiles where designed to be shareable. (you can upload the ini file somewhere so someone else can use it, you can also paste the contents online)
